The influence of martensite stabilization on the two way shape memory effect (TWME) has been studied in a commercial Cu-Zn-Al alloy. It is shown that the TWME is never complete, in contrast to results for single crystals. It depends on the fraction of martensite that is stabilized, i.e. on the stabilization stress and on the temperature to which the sample is heated after stabilization: The lower the stress, the higher is the efficiency of the TWME, but the smaller is also the total TWMEdoi:10.1051/jp4:1997578 fatcat:aea6xp7wnnf4zn4tmi6isqq22m
